Facts Cause Cancer
The British can be such killjoys. They recently published an article filled with scientific research that concluded that taking fish oil supplements is a waste of time. This of course comes after we've been told for years that taking fish oil is good for us. "It will fight off heart disease, lower cholesterol, and keep your toilet bowl fresh and sparkly" we were told. It's just like the time we were told eggs were suddenly okay after years of being told they were bad for our cholesterol? Which is it, for Pete's sake?
We're always being told that something new causes cancer. Exposure cause cancer —exposure to the sun, exposure to x-rays, exposure to Roseanne reruns. Think about it! They're telling us the sun causes cancer. The sun attacks us 12+hours a day/365 days a year (unless you live near one of the poles). How do we escape the sun? How do we escape Roseanne?
Other everyday things cause cancer too. Lead causes cancer. Next they'll be telling us carbon causes cancer! And that's when it hit me. After fretting for about 7.5 minutes about all the things that the science and health industry claim are bad for us this year and good for us the next, it occurred to me what was at the very root of this problem: facts. Facts cause cancer. You can't have the phrase "causes cancer" without some ne'er-do-well fact preceding it. And since, I pretty much keep this blog fact free, I can say this is the safest blog you could possibly read.
My advice, avoid facts. You'll live longer. Or at least that's what I'm going to say until the British finish their study on avoiding facts.
Carry on, Citizens! (Fact free, since 2003)
